Array CGH is widely used in cytogenetics centres for postnatal constitutional genome analysis, and is now recommended as a first line test in place of G-banded chromosome analysis. At our centre, first line testing by oligonucleotide array CGH for all constitutional referrals for genome imbalance has been in place since June 2008, using a patient vs patient(More)
This paper reports the first example of tumour infiltrating lymphocytes (TILs) and a tumour cell line from the same individual and analyses their characteristics. The tumour cell line (CAT), derived from a patient with well-differentiated (G3pTa) TCC, has been in culture for 24 months and subcultured more than 100 times. Epithelial origin was established by(More)
Anophthalmia or microphthalmia occur in approximately one in 10 children who have severe visual impairment. These eye malformations are often of unknown aetiology, but can be inherited in autosomal dominant, recessive or X-linked forms, and can also occur in association with specific chromosome abnormalities. Four children are described in the medical(More)
We report seven new patients with clinical features of the Smith-Magenis syndrome (SMS) and small de novo interstitial deletions of 17p11.2. Four of these patients had been referred for fragile-X studies, but standard G-banded chromosome analysis routinely carried out in addition to the fragility tests revealed the microdeletion in chromosome 17. A(More)
The neuro-behavioral disorder of autism was first described in the 1940s and was predicted to have a biological basis. Since that time, with the growth of genetic investigations particularly in the area of pediatric development, an increasing number of children with autism and related disorders (autistic spectrum disorders, ASD) have been the subject of(More)
